“Sports is a major part of my recovery! Being a professionel soldier is similar to being a professionel athlete, and going from being on top of the world in Afghanistan, to learn how to walk properly again and needing help with every day things has not been easy. Using sports to achieve new goals, is natural for me, and makes it easier and more fun. Using sports with other wounded veterans, gives the unity and strength we used to have as active duty members.”- Invictus Games: Team Denmark Team Captain Michael T. Soerensen
